High-tech Passports Delayed

Published: Wednesday, 08/01/2007 12:00 am EDT

German passports enhanced with security features will not be available to residents in Toronto and Winnipeg because of technical difficulties, according to a notice from the German Consulate in Toronto. The notice issued last week said the consulate in Toronto and the honorary consul in Winnipeg will not be able to process the new passports, which will have a red colour. However, temporary passports (with a green cover) are being issued. German passport holders whose travel documents are expiring before the middle of 2008 are urged to apply for new ones.
